The Unsociable Fellow

Feel lucky if he says hello if him you do meet
The unsociable fellow who lives on our street
'Tis a huge effort for him just to say good day
He always does seem stuck for something to say
He does not play any sports does not talk of football
He is one who does not have any hobby at all
In his early twenties tall, broad shouldered and strong
To any social grouping he does not belong
Yet he risked his life to save the Medways young daughter trapped in a house fire
For his bravery alone he is one to admire
When he is in the pub he always drinks on his own
The unsociable fellow not well liked or well known
But young Tom Medway and Julie his young wife
Feel indebted to him for their only child's life.
